Christmas present

Protective arms to an orphaned child,

gentle words to a splintered mind,

a family fractured, reconciled.

Un-tinselled gifts of a human kind.

A worthy addition to any collection of poetical observations on the human condition.

Succinct and perfectly wrapped.

Edit to add: I've just read your own comment - glad you kept it as just this one verse.

Thanks all for your comments and reading, pleased you liked it. I had contemplated another verse or two, but there really seemed little else worth saying.

Simple and inspired. No need for flannel for this kind of sentiment David. Every word resonates and has power, and the contrast of gentle with splintered and fractured says it all.

Beautifully elevated perspective on what it means to be in need..for many, the most precious things can't be purchased.

Love it. Particularly deep and meaningful in the present international context leading up to the festive (?) season.
We are after all one tribe and messages like your play a part in the healing process.
